After Election, Obama's gonna shift (even further) to the Left

Which, of course, we know would happen. Memo to voters: he's not going to cut your taxes, he's going to raise them. OR, he's going to be unable to carry out all those campaign promises. Obama says he's going to cut spending by streamlining government, but that goes against everything all the liberal activists want.

he Campaign for America's Future, a progressive Washington group founded by a former adviser to the Rev. Jesse Jackson's presidential bids, is organizing a conference for this month on creating a government-funded investment fund for public works projects. The Center for American Progress recently released a two-year, $100 billion plan for producing renewable energy, and its president, former Clinton administration Chief of Staff John Podesta, has been tapped to lead the Obama transition team.

Last month in Washington, an organization recently formed by Martin Luther King III, son of the slain civil-rights leader, attracted more than 100 leading activists on poverty and other social issues to a daylong conference. Mr. King demanded that the next president appoint a cabinet member dedicated to eradicating poverty. In a keynote address, Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs called for substantially higher tax collections to fund government investments in energy production, public works and eradicating poverty and other ills.

You know, I'm gonna try-out for that cabinet appointment dedicated to eradicating poverty. My plan? Simple:

Go to school, and STAY in school until you graduate.
Don't break the law.
Get a job.
Don't have a baby before you are 25, unless you are married and have a job.

How much do you think I'll get paid?
